Worcester Art Museum opens its doors to old and new friends, neighbors, and families for a festive day that commemorates the triumph of light over darkness.

 

“Diwali: Festival of Lights” is the theme of this year’s popular Fall Community Day. Diwali is India’s most celebrated national holiday, a colorful and joyous time when family, food, beautiful adornments, and displays of light all herald the embrace of knowledge over ignorance, of light over darkness. Diwali is always celebrated in late fall in honor of the light that perseveres.

 

The daylong community event is held in partnership with the India Society of Worcester. And, like the national celebrations in India, WAM’s Diwali Community Day will be filled with fun, special treats, and performances.
